American Cool: Constructing a Twentieth-Century Emotional Style - Stearns, Peter N, and Walker, Lisa

This is the study of a major change in American middle-class emotional culture. It took place between the end of World War I and the 1950s. Becoming a cool character meant adopting an air of nonchalance, an emotional mantle, to shield the whole personality from embarrassing excess.
